The Vikings made a change in the backfield during their bye week when they claimed running back Ameer Abdullah off of waivers from the Lions.Abdullah was a starter for most of his first three seasons Ricky Wagner Jersey , but fell out of favor in Detroit this year and played in just three games before losing his roster spot. It’s unclear how much playing time he can expect to see with Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray already on hand.鈥淚鈥檓 entering a backfield with a lot of talent with Dalvin and Latavius and all of the guys who have been here,鈥?Abdullah said, via 1500ESPN.com. 鈥淛ust to come in today and see these guys welcome me the way they have Anthony Zettel Jersey , it does a lot for my confidence, it does a lot for my focus. I鈥檓 ready to work. Anything the Vikings ask me to, I鈥檓 willing to do.”Kickoff returns might be a spot for Abdullah to make an impact. He handled the job as a rookie with the Lions and the Vikings have shuffled through a handful of options without finding one that’s stepped up to take hold of the job this season.Lions cutting former 7th-round pick RB Dwayne Washington Miles Killebrew Jersey , placing Zach Zenner on IR The Detroit Lions’ backfield just got a little smaller. Despite a pretty impressive preseason finale, the Lions are cutting running back Dwayne Washington, per Dave Birkett.Originally a 2016 seventh-round pick Nick Bellore Jersey , we may have seen the last of Dwayne Washington in a Lions jersey. After adding both Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount this offseason, the Lions set up a tough uphill climb for Washington to make the roster.But Washington never really got much of a chance to make an impression in the preseason. He barely saw any playing time, either on offense or special teams T.J. Jones Jersey , putting his chances at making the roster at nearly zero. That is, until the preseason finale where he played nearly the entire game against the Cleveland Browns. He played well enough where he could get some interest from some other teams.He still has practice squad eligibility, but the Lions may want to use the spot a little more wisely considering their strong depth at the position. In 17 career games with the Lions Kerry Hyder Jersey , Washington has 110 carries for 309 yards (2.8 YPC) and a touchdown. Update: In addition to cutting Washington, the Lions are also placing fellow running back Zach Zenner on injured reserve. The undrafted back suffered a back injury in the preseason finale.
